Ohio's Learning Standards for Mathematics

Ohio educators, many of whom engage daily with Ohio students, drove the process to make improvements to Ohio’s Learning Standards for Mathematics as part of a periodic review. In many cases, the changes reflect instruction already taking place in Ohio’s classrooms. The clarifications in the revised standards will guide districts in modifying, not replacing their existing local curriculum, instructional plans and materials. In addition to the information available now, we will be providing additional resources to help educators learn about, and begin using, the revised standards. 

Ohio’s Learning Standards, which were first adopted in 2010, explain what skills and knowledge Ohio students in kindergarten through grade 12 need to know to succeed. In 2015-2016, educators statewide and the Ohio Department of Education began an updating process resulting in revised standards that the State Board of Education adopted in February 2017.

We encourage districts to learn about and begin teaching with the revised standards. The 2018-2019 Ohio’s State Tests will measure how students are progressing through the revised 2017 standards.

Special Note Regarding Accessibility

The Ohio Department of Education is dedicated to making information posted on these webpages accessible, in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. We will be making improvements to portable document format (PDF) documents so that mathematics documents are more accessible. In the meantime, those needing assistance may contact (877) 644-6338.
